cbs reporter danielle nottingham live in washington, d.c. now with the latest on the voting and maneuvering in congress. good afternoon. >> reporter: good afternoon, frank and house speaker john boehner did not say that he was for this deal but he didn't say he was against it, either. and right now, he is trying to take the temperature of his fellow republicans in the house to see if this deal is ready for a vote. house speaker john boehner is promising a quick vote on the "fiscal cliff" bill passed early this morning in the senate or an amended alternative. boehner has not endorsed the agreement which may face opposition from conservative lawmakers in the house. vice president joe biden negotiated the deal with senate republicans over the weekend. the agreement makes bush-era tax cuts permanent for individuals making under $400,000 a year and families making under $450,000. it also postpones harsh across- the-board spending cuts for a
12:01 pm
few months. >> this shouldn't be the model for how we do things around here, but i think we can say we've done some good for the country. >> middle class families will wake up today to the assurance that their taxes won't go up $2,200 each. >> reporter: president obama praised the senate agreement and urged the house to act without delay. capitol hill is quiet right now after an unprecedented late night. normally these halls would stay empty on new year's day but both the house and senate are in session with billions of dollars in spending cuts and tax increases on the rise. lawmakers missed the january 1st deadline but the bill will be retroactive. many taxpayers across the nation are frustrated that lawmakers waited so long to act. >> the whole system is flawed. it's terrible that it takes this long to get something done. >> it's been frustrating. >> reporter: if the measure becomes law, it will be the
12:02 pm
first significant bipartisan tax increase since 1990. the deal also would extend unemployment benefits and it would also prevent a spike in milk prices. live on capitol hill, danielle nottingham. frank, back to you. >> danielle, what if the house approves this today? what's the process and when will we, if we do feel an effect, the public that is, anyway? >> reporter: well, if the house does approve this, the public wouldn't feel the effect of the tax increases but what this deal does not address in the long term are the those automatic spending cuts. they have only been delayed for a couple of months. also what we have coming up is the debt limit showdown also. so this is really a temporary deal and in just a couple of months we could see another "fiscal cliff" and that's the concern with a lot of the lawmakers here on capitol hill today, frank. >> still some work to do.
12:03 pm
okay, danielle knottingham in washington, thank you. a high-speed chase killed two and another is clinging to life in the hospital. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran is at the scene. can you tell us what started the chase? >> reporter: well, grace, it all actually began with reports of shots fired. this is a tragic ending especially that we're kicking off the new year. two people are dead another fighting for his life after this crash happened here at the corner of south van ness and 21st street. neighbors woke up to 2013 with a boom. but not what they were expecting. >> i was sleeping and it was just a loud crash. i just got up because i was curious about what it was. but it was really loud. so then i just heard police and sirens everywhere. >> reporter: the whole incident started after sfpd got reports of shots fired at valencia gardens just after 7:45, not too far from this location. after officers got on scene, they found this black chevy malibu. >> this vehicle was reported to

5. we have a bizarre situation out of san jose. a little more than an hour ago, police wrapped up a nearly three-hour standoff with a naked man wielding a samurai sword. this was in the area of southwest expressway and bascomb road. police also found an assault rifle in the man's car. officers were eventually able to take him into custody. and two people are dead and a man is under arrest after a new year's eve shooting in old sacramento. police say an argument turned into a fight inside a bar at 2nd and "k" streets last night. an employee at the bar went in to break it up and that's when the suspect allegedly pulled out a gun and started firing. the employee and another man were hit multiple times and died. a woman and security guard were also wounded. >> some gunshots and unclear at first if they were real or not. we kind of stood in the street and when we saw people running out of the building, i dodged under some stairs. and when the second round of shots started, i saw the gunman come out of the building with
12:06 pm
his gun still pointed into the building. >> that shooting happened as thousands of people were gathering in the area for a new year's celebration. the midnight fireworks show was canceled after the shooting. it was a violent way to end the new year at a couple of tourist spots here in san francisco. police tell us that a person was shot in the hand at fisherman's wharf near jefferson and mason. police searched the area for a suspect, who was seen running on beech street towards alioto's restaurant. and then at 11:30 there was another shooting on the embarcadero near pier 23. a 12-year-old boy and a man were hit by gunfire. they weren't seriously hurt. san francisco police do want to hear from anyone, though, who might have had information about that shooting. a major dismantling of some marijuana operations in remote areas of santa clara county. sheriff's deputies actually dangled on 100-foot ropes suspended from a helicopter and dropped into eight separate locations with help from the

12:08 pm
we may have political disputes, ballot measures, things like that. but nevertheless, they deserve respect for the work they do, the difficult jobs that they have, and i'm here to thank them on behalf of the people of san jose and wish them a happy new year. >> later, the mayor was joined by city council members at a half dozen fire stations. contra costa county is operating with four fewer fire stations at this noon hour. contra costa supervisors investigated unanimously last month to close the stations in clayton, lafayette, martinez and walnut creek. it's expected to save $8 million a year. on january 10, fire officials will meet with martinez residents to talk about the station closure in their city. byob! we're not talking about alcohol. it's the latest bay area region to tell shoppers to bring your own bag. >> plus, it's a new year's tradition. the big rose parade down south. the floats with bay area ties that wowed the crowds today coming up. >> hi, i'm meteorologist lawrence karnow in the cbs 5 weather center. the skies clearing out now.

you see them here in the bay area, taxes in el cerrito and union city alone are at 9.5%. it turns out that the health of the economy could actually influence whether a child picks up unhealthy habits. scientists at the state university of new york found children who grow up when unemployment rates are high are more likely to drink, smoke and use marijuana in their teens. researchers want doctors to consider their study when dealing with children born during this most recent recession. and if you partied too hard last night you might want to buy some asparagus. we have sign it is in korea who apparently analyzed the vegetable's chemical compounds and believe that the amino acids and minerals in asparagus can replenish the body to relieve a hangover. the study also found it helps protect the liver from toxins and that includes alcohol. >> lawrence just left.
